"Good location, great view, disappointing room"
The view from the apartments with sea view is amazing, but we did pay for a double room and got 2 single camp beds which was very disappointing!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal holiday location"
Fantastic holiday stay- fabulous pool, minutes from the beach, supermarket and restaurants! Lovely staff, great English-speaking skills, rooms very comfortable and clean. I stayed as a young person with my friends and it was ideal, but very family orientated as well, loved it :)Genuine Expedia guest review

"Relaxing and beautiful place"
It is one of the wonderful places I have stated in my holidays - very friendly, efficient and warm staff. and comfortable apartment. The place is so beautiful and well kept and is very relaxing. We enjoyed the spa, yoga and other activities; they have been fantastic. It is well situated next to the centre and the beach. It is a wonderful place to visit […] and stay.

"Great hotel, good food"
We can thoroughly recommend this hotel. We had never stayed in a resort hotel before and didn't know what to expect. In fact, our prejudice was rather negative, but the CPO (Clube Praia da Oura) turned this around and made want to come back. However, when we first arrived and were taken to our room by the porter, we were a bit disappointed as the beds […] were twin beds (we were a couple) and our room (although sea view) was facing the so-called Bowling Green where between 8pm and midnight they have entertainment programme going on, i.e. loud dance/party music. We came to the resort to chill, to read our books, to have cosy comfy evenings/nights on the balcony with a cold beer or nice glass of wine. Four hours of loud party music would have been torture for us and I truly feel sorry for the people who had to put up with it. We went straight back to reception to ask for a different room away from the "entertainment area" and were very happy with the alternative we were given. Block K with double bed and sea view. So bear in mind, when you book, that there are certain parts of the building where you don't want to be put if you like your peace and quiet. (I should add that there is more loud music between 5-6.30pm in that same part of the estate) We would come back to this club any time - but would call to make sure we get the rooms we want.

"Shocked. No AC!"
We booked Clube Praia Da Oura for a 4 night stay in July. I was hopeful that the bad reviews on trip advisor were unwarranted, unfortunately that was not the case. While the service was good and the upkeep of the grounds was very good as well, there was one major issue that could not be overlooked; no AC. There were merely two small fans in the room […] that offered little to no relief from the heat blazing outside. Stepping into the room was like stepping into a hot stove every time. There is no excuse for not offering AC in all rooms in a place such as algarve, especially when it is advertised as such. For this reason I would certainly not recommend this apartment hotel. No AC made it extremely uncomfortable each and every night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Won't be returning to Clube Praia da Oura"
My mother and I have just returned from a week in Clube Praia da Oura, our studio apartment was up a very steep hill, which my mother found difficult to climb, I picked these apartments are they are advertised as being on the beach, our apartment was a 10 minutes walk from the beach, so beware when booking. There wasn't any air con in our Studio and […] when I asked about hiring a fan I was told they hadn't any left. The pool was extremely loud with music, so we opted for the beach everyday which was alot more relaxing. I guess you get what you pay for and the accommodation was cheap, we won't be returning, ever!

"Great hotel for anybody-from an 18 yr old"
The staff were so helpful and friendly, and really went beyond what was expected. Our room was lovely and quite big considering it was only a standard room for 2 people. The location was amazing and enabled you to go to so many different places. The beaches are so close and the pool was lovely and therefore the gorgeous hot weather wasn't at all a problem! […] I would definitely recommend this resort/hotel to a friend and would love to go back again as it literally couldn't have been a better holiday! Eventhough the resort was mainly families, 30 18 year olds in my friendship group all went with me, and there was lovely and cheap places to eat out, as well as a having a supermarket really nearby! The strip offered us plenty of clubs and bars to go to in the evening and so it couldn't have been better!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location but no air con!"
Really loved the hotel, plenty of sunbeds, great grass on the ground and close to the beach. Literally the only downfall was the fact there was no air con! Everything else was perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for couples or younger travellers"
Very large room and helpful staff,good location for relaxing on the beach and plenty of nice places to eat along the strip. Can get a bit loud during the evening but otherwise pleasant well kept grounds. The hotel has a quite a few stairs not so hood for mobility problems. Went self catering so cannot comment on the food. Would return again with fr […] iends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice View But Disappointing Overall"
On arrival in the room (had studio with sea view), was very disappointed in how dark the room was. Was not happy with two single beds, and tucked away in the back of the room so no view when you wake up in the morning. You have to pass by other rooms' balcony's and you realize straight away that you will have no peace and no privacy as the walls between […] the balcony's are half walls, able to see over and hear everyone's conversations very clearly.Wifi is not free, 6eur/day and doesn't connect more than 3 or 4 times a day. Rooms are not serviced more than twice a week (asked for towels and it was a hassle to get them but eventually I did get a new set on the third day). Very disappointed in the pool area, everyone is very squeeed in -and TRUST ME, you MUST get to the pool before 9am or most of the loungers have been reserved (people come up around 8, leave their towels on the chosen loungers and go away for a couple of hours). And I agree wholeheartedly with another reviewer: the barking packs of dogs across the way are really annoying. On a positive note, the beach is within a very easy stroll, lots of restaurants, lots of beach activities Surrounding town is great, again lots of bars and resaturants. All in all i was reservedly satisfied but if you want a peaceful, private relaxing holiday, four pools and lots of activites along with the beach within steep cliff walk, try the Alfagar Aparthotels, stayed there two weeks prior and loved every second of it.

"Senior couples view."
The hotel covers a large area and it's worth susing out where you would like your room to be. We had paid extra for a room with a sea view which turned out to be quiet comfortable and with a fantastic view. High level rooms are better for couples and its worth deciding whether you would like the morning or evening sun on your patio. The down side of […] the rooms is that you have to pull one of the single beds from under the other bed each night to form either two singles or one double bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Low Budget but Brilliant"
We had a studio room located on the ground level directly across from the pool. The room was very adequate for what we needed. We were however a bit surprised to find that the pull out bed was in fact not a sofa bed but instead two small single mattresses, one rolled out under the upper level mattress and could be put back together as a small couch. […] This was ok for us because we are sisters, but would not be desirable for a couple. The kitchen was adequate but lacked a coffee maker. We were aware and brought our own small coffee maker. Would recommend this to people who do not require a fancy place, but want the ability to make their own meals. Perfect distance to the strip, the beach and walking distance to old town.

"stunning views over the ocean"
excellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I love this hotel; have stayed there before and it doesn't disappoint... rooms are clean and spacious, it's a short stroll to the beach and the nightlife, but quiet enough when it's time to sleep. I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my stay here - the room we stayed in was small but clean with a great view. Perhaps a little dated but location definately made up for it. Right beside the beach, 2 minutes from the Strip and 10 minutes from the train to the Old Town. Staff were plesant and polite and the pool was lovely, if a little cold! Didn't eat in the hotel's restaurant […] but the food did smell lovely any time we passed! Overall, it was a pleasant stay, best probably for couples and families.

"Great location but needs improvement"
A nice resort, if a little dated. The rooms were large, but I had a very old uncomfortable bed, there was only one fan, and not in the bedroom, and compared to friends in other rooms with flat screen TVs and DVD players, I had a fuzzy old TV. The pool was nice, and the poolside bar, but the food was below average. Great location with lots of beaches […] to explore. Charging 20 Euros to hire a safe for a week is theft.

"Will keep going back"
A fantastic hotel. We have stayed here 3 times now over a period of 14 years both as a newly married couple and now with young children and can confirm it is good for all age ranges. The facilities are great with easy access to a lovely beach a nice pool (although at the start of the year is very cold). The rooms are well kept with a maid service every […] other day. The sauna is good and having links with the sister hotel means you can use the gym. Location is good as it's right next to the strip for local restaurants and entertainment. It's only 40 min from Faro airport and esay access to the rest of the Algarve. Would and do recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location at the beach"
This hotel has many plus points: ideally located; well kept; well maintained pools; excellent staff; family friendly. Just one drawback (and it's not a major one) is the sheer size of the place. It is a bit like a maze and finding our apartment the first time was challenging! We thoroughly enjoyed it and we will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Banging hotel for everyone--especially students!"
We decided to visit Albufeira for our spring break (we are 4 female University students), and were suspicious of how cheap the prices of Clube Praia da Oura were. We thought it was too good to be true, especially after looking at all the beautiful pictures. There is absolutely NO CATCH, and it is just a phenomenal establishment. The staff was infinitely […] friendly, and the amenities were superb. We went from 17 March to 21 March, and though there wasn't really anyone in our age group (it was filled mostly with older couples), we still had a blast! Going out in the Montechero Strip and Old Town is very easy (about a 5 euro taxi ride away), and laying out in the sun during the days was awesome. We highly recommend this place, and plan on coming back next year! Make sure you check out Restaurante Da Enzo and the Mexican restaurant near Da Enzo--delicious!

"Graet location for the coastal walks"
My wife and I had a marvellous 11 nights at the CPO. Everything in the room was not brand new but the apartment provided all of the comfort and equipment we needed for an excellent self catering holiday. We did not have a sea view but the gardens outside the balcony were very well kept and the palm trees gave an exotic setting. This apartment was a […] great base for the walking and outdoor holiday that we had planned. There was ample parking space for our hired car which enabled us to reach coastal walks further afield.

This is a very large complex with lots of facilites, pools, nightlife and a Bowling green next to a Bar which has a fabuous sea view. We had a Studio apartment which was fine for two weeks but for a longer stay I think I'd choose a one bedroom. Our room was a little dated but still provided excellent value for money. We'll be going back!Genuine Expedia guest review
Couldn't fault this place... Next to beach! Close yet far enough from strip not to hear it at night. Everything thing would have been 100% till we tried to ring room service. Realised our phone didn't work.. Then all of a sudden the staff were rude and English was an issue! Shame took the shine off what otherwise was an unbelievable stay..

"Lovely weekend(s) in the Algarve"
My boyfriend and I have stayed here once before in November of 2012. Both visits were great. The staff is very friendly and there is a very good room service menu if you don't feel like venturing out in the rain. The beach is stunning with panoramic views of the coast and the strip is right up the hill. There is a great club 2 minuets from the center […] of the resort as well. The breakfast was very good too; British style (as we reside in Canada [eh!]). As for the rooms they are a bit older but have this great charm to them. The furniture is bright and airy completing the feel of the apartment. Kitchen is missing only one thing: a coffee maker but other than that is was well stalked. The one thing that we did not enjoy was the bed this time around. It was very hard so we put some of the extra blankets down and that seemed to do the trick. Please don't let the bed turn you away from this hotel! It is beautiful and a great Portuguese treat! Make sure to walk the beach as far as you can go as the views are beautiful. Enjoy.

"Close to the beach at a quieter end of town."
For those with reduced mobility the hotel is on a hill but you can reach the beach and the main bar area "the strip". Ask for easy access when you book the room so there are no steps. To walk to the old town talks about 1 hour (but is good exercise). We had Christmas lunch at the Oura Priaya Hotel (sister hotel next door) and that was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect. Would return in a heart beat"
We both loved our stay here. The room was compact but had everything we needed and more including everything required to cook a meal within the room. Our room was at the end of the hotel over looking the sea which was stunning to wake up to. Shops and restuarants were about a 10 minute walk, but in good weather, it's not a bad walk. We went away for […] a weekend in November so can't comment on the pool and with it being this time of year it was nice and quiet. Very happy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Holiday Apartment in Portugal"
The studio apartment was on the small side and while we requested a double bed there was only a couch type single bed with another pull out bed underneath, which we ended up taping together and it was not that comfortable.

"Superb beachside location"

"Great Location but rooms lets this hotel down"
We stayed 5 nights at this hotel August 2012. When we arrived we were very happy the reception was very modern and nice, and the staff were very friendly. I had the impression the hotel was not to big but i found out when i went to get to my room their where hundreds of rooms and only 1 pool that i seen, a bit busy for my taste. The room itself was […] big as was the balcony, however very dated and the bathroom could do with a total redecorating. No air-con. and towles where only supplied every 2 days. The plus side to the appartment block is its very close to the beach which is a lovely beach and along it their is some great spots for a bite to eat and a drink. Also the main party streeet is only 3 or 4 mins walk away in the evening, but far enough for peace when its bed time.The old town is a 30 min walk away or 5 mins in a taxi only 5 euro. Overall i will not stay at this hotel again but i would stay in the area again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely place but TOOO HOT!"
The only problem with this hotel is no Air Conditioning. This is a major problem! It was so hot in the bedrooms it was difficult to sleep even though the windows opened. Also the excursions were good but the problem was that the coach left too early to come back and there was no choice to get a later coach. For example excursion to the water park we […] got the 9am coach there but had to come back at 4pm even though the park didn't close until 6pm! This was rather annoying as it was expensive to get into the park and we would like to make the most of the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only good thing about this hotel was its location. That alone wouldn’t be enough for me to book this again though. Rooms are way to small and not what specified. No air-conditioning either. Clothing go stolen out of my room and was not replaced. They refused to accept breakfast was included in the price, even though it was. Worst of all the staff […] are so unhelpful and extremely slow at doing anything. I was waiting 1 hour in the queue to check in, even though there were only 4 people in front of me. If you had any questions for reception following that, good luck, you’ll be waiting another hour. I would absolutely not recommend this hotel to anyone ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely complex in perfect location"
Just back from 2 week family holiday in CPO - great location right beside Oura beach. Our apartment had fabulous sea view with a large balcony and was very quiet. The complex is in an ideal location, grounds are very attractive and well maintained. Our 2 bed apartment was spacious and cleaning service was very good with fresh towels every day. Lovely […] restaurants in immediate vicinity along by the beach and within walking distance of the strip if you want something livelier! Choice of water activities on the beach - paragliding, banana boats, pedal boats etc. Only negative is lack of Air Conditioning in apartments but good fans provided. Also, usual problem with guests putting towels on sun loungers by the pool early in the morning - but we prefered the beach anyway. Will definitely go back to CPO.
